This week we asked students at New Star High School about the best ways to learn more English. Many said they learned by using English. Some students had more specific suggestions. Lillian Li, for example, said the best way to learn new words was by reading English magazines. She said that memorizing the words of pop songs also helped a little. When we asked about studying grammar, she said, I never study grammar. Its too boring.

20 Wei Ming feels differently. Hes been learning English for six years and really loves it. He thinks studying grammar is a great way to learn a lang- uage. He also thinks that watching English movies isnt a bad way because he can watch the actors say the words. Sometimes, however, he finds watching movies frustrating because the people speak too quickly. Liu Chang said that joining the English club at school was the best way to improve her English. students get lots of practice and they also have fun. She added that having conversations with friends was not helpful at all. We get excited about something and then end up speaking in Chinese, she said.
